Abstract :

Data on the morphology and variability of the poorly known cyclopoid Cyclops ladakanus from the mountain lakes Karakul (3950 m above sea level) and Shorkul (3782 m above sea level) in the Pamirs (Tajikistan) are presented. The synonymy of Cyclops ladakanus Kiefer, 1936 and Cyclops pamirensis Gurvich, 1959 is confirmed.
